My laptop died on me a while ago. It is apparently a motherboard failure according to the beeps at start up. I have decide that it will be too costly for me to get this fixed but since it was a very expensive laptop I will try and sell it as is. The only thing is I had some photos and stuff stored on the hard drive that I would rather have removed before I sell it. Nothing dodgy just family and stuff haha. So my question is... is there some way to delete the contents of the hard drive without being able to power the laptop on somehow? Any help would be appreciated.
